Watch for Venus in the pre-dawn sky on Monday, November 26, 2012, when it can be seen less than one degree from Saturn.
Then beginning around 6PM on Wednesday November 28th, look for the Full “Beaver” Moon.
Preparing for winter is necessary for survival for all creatures who live where the seasons include long periods of sub-freezing temperatures, darkness, chilling winds and frozen precipitation. Many perennial plants enter a dormancy period. Some animals similarly hibernate. Other animals store food caches and take in extra calories. People plan for winter's home heating needs and adjust their wardrobes to meet day-to-day activities in the cold.The November moon derives its "name" from this preparation for winter. One definition tends toward the more human application. In some Northern Hemisphere cultures this was a time to set beaver traps to ensure a supply of warm winter furs for both personal use and for trade. Another interpretation comes from the observation that beavers actively prepare for winter at this time. The November full moon is also called the Full Frost Moon.
